Regional Analysis

Europe’s fintech industry is accelerating faster than any region outside the Americas as convergence with Open Finance regulation combines with strong consumer adoption.

Challenges exist around language, cultural and regulatory fragmentation – thus EU harmonization attempts persist. Many incumbents maintain legacy systems. As the continent contends with economic uncertainty, consumer trust in digital-first challengers remains a barrier for mass adoption.
